Infographic: The essential role of electrical engineers

April 20, 2017

CO2, or carbon dioxide emissions, are an inevitable result of energy use around the world.

When society uses energy, it also creates waste because only a percentage of that energy is consumed. The rest drifts into the air like exhaust from a car.

This percentage of emissions is referred to as “efficiency.” The ways communities and industries use energy for work or leisure vary widely in their efficiency, but almost all of them contribute to the many millions of metric tons of emissions recorded annually in the United States.

While cars are responsible for a huge portion of that figure, electricity consumption plays a big part in this problem, so electrical engineers are also trying to be a part of the solution.

The infographic below by the New Jersey Institute of Technology’s online masters in electrical engineering program explores the essential role of electrical engineers.
